Without much ado, let me just say I am a huge Jim Starlin fan. Especially his Cosmic Marvel stuff. I'm old enough that I have originals of his Captain Marvel and Warlock epics.

First off: Prior reading necessity. If you have not already, you'd probably want the Thanos vs. The Avengers trade, The Infinity saga (Gauntlet, War, and maybe the very lackluster Crusade) Warlock and the Infinity Watch, and another maybe, the mediocre Marvel Universe The End.

Suprisingly, (or not) having read the recent Marvel Infinity saga isn't necessary. Starlin, I have noticed, tends to ignore the use of Thanos when handled by other creators. Actually this is for the best here. Infinity as well as the so-called Thanos Rising origin story gave us some pretty idiotic lapses in continuity and logic. No mention is made here of any of that.

Without giving away too much -- although there aren't really any "spoilers" per se -- I will give the good and the bad of this book.

The Good: Starlin is firing on all cylinders with the artwork. While totally out of sync with today's grittier artists like Lenil Yu or Simone Bianchi, he does not make any attempt to "modernize". In fact, he allows himself to indulge in some outright psychedelic type art that would have fit in perfectly in the 70s.

Thanos is written almost perfectly as, not so much bad guy, (at least not in the beginning) but kind of where he was in the Infinity War series, as more of an independent adventurer and seeker of knowledge.

Adam Warlock is back for the ride. At this point these two are kind of like a cosmic Laurel and Hardy, or Oscar and Felix.

The Not So Good: What the heck is going on?

Format: Hardcover
In a lot of ways this is a love letter to long time Thanos and Warlock fans. It's a brilliant story but very "meta" and as a consequence of that will many fans scratching their heads as to what the whole point was. Unless you're intimately familiar with the history of Thanos, Warlock, AND Starlin's well documented disputes with Marvel a lot of the meaning of this story will be lost in the ether. I've read a lot of reviews here where people just didn't "get it" so I'd like to try and explain it.

The whole story is very "meta" so keep that in mind when reading

- When we first see Thanos in that catatonic state , i believe that was Starlin's way of saying the "real" Thanos (His version) had been dormant and comatose metaphorically since his creator (Starlin) had last been with him. In essence he had not been himself and was in a sense inactive or not there. I believe is was just symbolic of everything that had happened with the character in recent years and Starlin's documented problem with Marvel. Starlin has retconned other writers work on Thanos before and revealed them as clones but thats another story. With Thanos surging in popularity in recent years , Starlin doesn't have the luxury of establishing control again. This story feels a lot like a goodbye as well as Starlin leaving himself a backdoor to undo any damage done to Warlock and Thanos at a later date if need be. I'll get to that later...

- The Living Tribunal refers to a power greater than himself. To my knowledge this has never happened before as he has always been at the top of the cosmic tree. I believe the power he is referring to is Marvel itself (editorial and writers) in the real world outside comics.

Format: Hardcover
I have always liked Jim Starlin's cosmic stories especially those centered around Thanos one of the great comic book anti heroes who is sometimes an outright villain and sometimes is on the side of good as a strategy of self preservation as in most of the post Infinity Gauntlet stories The Infinity Revelation has Thanos as a mixture of villain and heroic anti hero as he notices a disturbance in the universe and wants to explore it. He is joined by Adam Warlock his sometimes ally sometimes arch nemesis on this journey mainly because Warlock doesnt trust Thanos Along the way Thanos shows his power in some lopsided fight scenes and eventually discovers the secret of the disturbance which is in my opinion rather pointless and a major let down Only Starlin's skill in characterizing Thanos and Warlock get the story to three stars would be a half star higher if I had the option So why the 4 star rating? Because this is some of Starlin's best art ever with slick inks by Andy Smith and color effects by Frank D'Armata that are amazing even though full process color has been around for thirty years or so. Even the lettering by Joe Caramanga is a highlight in its versatility. All of these things are 5 star Too bad Starlin wrote a story that showed promise but is probably his weakest Thanos story even worse than Infinity Crusade and Infinity Abyss However it looks great and even bad Starlin Thanos is worth a read when attached to such visual magnificence

I've followed the older stories of Warlock and Thanos via back issues years ago, and truely enjoyed the characters back then. I've also found that I enjoyed them more so over the years when Starlin is writing them instead of another writer. This being said, I was underwhelmed by this story. The universe/reality is to undergo a transmutation for reasons unknown, and Thanos and Warlock are the only characters in the entire universe that play an active role in it. And I think that may be one of the issues I have with this story: it's a story of awesome scope, promising change to everything...and only two characters in the entire Marvel universe play a *direct* role in it. While I've enjoyed Thanos and Warlock in the past, I find myself growing tired of the fate of the universe revolving around them, often and repeatedly (ex. the various "Infinity" titles. "The End"). Hence why I can only give "Thanos: The Infinity Revelation" 3 stars: I've been on this same ride before, with the same characters.
